Dear Friends, Aslama Alaikum.
This is to request you to give your Zakaat to Gul Bahao. As you are aware Gul Bahao has been working tirelessly for the upliftment of society since the last twenty one years. The circle of people being affected by its work is growing exponentially.
Through its innovative schemes Gul Bahao is fighting for its goal of employment unlimited. Poor people have been shown how to earn money honestly.
More than Twenty five lac rupees worth of Chandi ghars (prefabricated shelters) have been put up in disaster affected areas of Mansehra, Muzzafargarh, Thatta , Awaran (Baluchistan) and Mithi(Tharparkar) during the last ten years. This also includes slum dwellers of Gulshan-e-Iqbal when their huts were burnt.
Our Research center which is also working as a Disaster Management Center has developed many other products and concepts of tremendous use to the common man. These include:
Chandi blocks which are inter convertible into furniture, roofs, tarpaulins, shelters, small water reservoirs.
Water purification technique.
Cheap fodder for livestock
Gardens in the air
Mithai – Nutritious, delicious, dried food pack
We have also conducted advocacy programs for the dissemination of authentic translations of the Holy Quran in three languages viz. Urdu, English and Sindhi. This has been in the form of exhibitions, producing cards, lectures, reading to the general public etc.
We are now set to address the needs of people living in mud houses.With the help of the almighty and support of civil society, we intend to directly or indirectly put up millions of Chandi Ghars- which are strong against the natural elements.Do visit our website for details.
